    I thought that you liked fresco?

    Did I misread something?

    This, my friend, is why the sock garter was invented.

    I thought that its main purpose was to serve as a form of birth control? [​IMG]

    One is refreshing to the eye, one to the lips. Both betrayed by a kiss.

    Isn't his more pressing problem the lack of OTF (over the forearm) sleeves?

    I believe that he has Velcro rip-offs.

    Having procreated to my heart's content, I can't speak to their ability to prevent pregnancy. But I can say that my infinitely understanding wife views them as yet another of my idiosyncrasies, which she finds mildly charming. They don't keep me from getting my fair share of Sweet Luv Makin.

    Not a fresco.

    Also, Christ has some crazy drape going on.

    I see. Personally I would still prefer over-the-calf cotton socks or wearing longer pants though... [​IMG]

    Or a seat rather than a step...

    Not allowing yourself to be taken pictures of with a wide-angle lens from underneath might also help... [​IMG]

    But do they keep you from getting more than your fair share of Sweet Luv Makin? That is the more pressing question for us unmarried forumites.

    Also, the "v," it confuses me.

    My favorite cotton-linen shirts are from Old Navy. I like my Gold Toe socks as well as Pantherellas. And my Cornelianis, while lacking the handwork of some coats/suits in my closet, remain my favorite.

    Am I the only one who fesses up to the toggle-back preference?

    No, I also think that they are so much damn easier to use. I don't even wear silk knots because they are such a pain, let alone double-sided links. Clearly others do as well, given the massive volume of Talbott toggle-backed cufflinks that were recently sold here.
